My single inspiration for becoming a school counselor. Thank you for mentoring me for so many years. I will miss you terribly, but your lessons will forever be in my heart.

I am sadden to hear about the passing of my beloved biology teacher from Whites Creek. I remember when we dissected a frog. Ms. Young was the mother to the students. Condolences to her family!! You will surely be missed.

I remember seeing Ms.Young everyday at the front of the hallway greeting her classes. She would say something to you if you were doing anything wrong. She was very welcoming to me as a new teacher back to Whites Creek. Me and my mother I looked for her every year at TSU's homecoming parade. We offer our condolences to the family. She was truly a community mothering soul.
